14.40 Metadata enriching and filtering for enhanced collection discoverability
Getaneh Alemu, Solent University
The return on investment for academic libraries is chiefly tied to access, usage and impact. Without accurate, consistent and quality metadata on the one hand, and an easy-to-use and effective discovery service on the other, these valuable resources may remain invisible and inaccessible to users. In this talk, Getaneh aims to present four overarching metadata principles, namely: metadata enriching, linking, openness and filtering. And how these ideas help shape the metadata creation and discovery services at Solent University – focusing on the implementation of RDA and FRBR as well as the use of subject authority headings and authority controls.

15.10 Developing a common language: how a single taxonomy can serve an entire organisation - Thomas Alexander, Cancer Research, UK
Thomas will review the ways in which well-resolved taxonomies and metadata help users find what they’re looking for at Cancer Research, UK. Their platform-agnostic approach has begun to reap rewards across the whole organisation. The taxonomy is an ever-expanding common language that is being used for both external purposes (primarily the website) and internal usage (knowledge management, research content, intranet).

16.50 W3C Semantic Web standards and discoverability of the regulatory rulebooks - Eugene Morozov
Eugene is an Engineering Practice Lead at Lab49, a strategy, design and technology consulting company specializing in capital markets. He is interested in the use of Semantic Web standards to improve timeliness and reduce costs of regulatory compliance for regulators and regulated firms in financial services. He also runs Semantic Web London meetup.
There is a growing awareness among capital market participants of the opportunities presented by making regulatory rulebooks, taxonomies and ontologies readable by machines, but Model-Driven Machine Executable Regulation (MDMER) is still a developing field. W3C Semantic Web standards have a large role to play in discoverability of the regulatory rulebooks and assessment of their impact on regulated firms. We'll look into the current state of its use by US and EU financial regulators.
